Representation at Magistrate’s Court

Having to appear before a magistrate’s court can be a very intimidating and frightening experience. 

If you are facing a charge at the Magistrates Court, you must contact a lawyer specializing in criminal law. The main advantage of using a criminal lawyer is that they have years of experience and can provide valuable insight into your case.

The lawyer will be able to advise you on how best to proceed with your case and prepare you for any court hearings. They will also be able to provide expert witness testimony if required.

To represent a client in a magistrate’s court, an attorney must be admitted to practice in the province or territory in which the client appears or must have made prior arrangements with the court to appear on behalf of the client. The solicitor must be a bar association member recognized by the chief justice of the province or territory.

In order to represent a client in a magistrate’s court, an attorney must meet all of these requirements:

  • be currently admitted as a solicitor or barrister in good standing.
  • be at least 18 years old.
  • be legally qualified under provincial or territorial law.

For this reason, we recommend that you contact our specialist solicitors at Magistrates Court, most of whom are effectively the consultant-level equivalent of the medical profession. Please do so as quickly as possible so that we can help you achieve the most favorable outcome for you in court with expert advice, support, and representation.

We have many regular clients, which makes us a very busy law firm, and our lawyers are specialists who benefit from the daily experience of appearing before many courts.

Our Lawyers are respected attorneys in court, and many have greater hearing rights to conduct Crown Court trials themselves. Having an attorney with courtroom experience will certainly make a difference in the outcome of the court.

The difference between our law firm compared to some competitors is that we are not just an online law firm with cases created from online work, we go to court every day, and therefore our law firm and our attorneys are for the CPS, the judicial staff, and the judges known. We have a high client retention rate because our lawyers are excellent criminal lawyers.

If you are not eligible for free legal aid, we offer a fair, private fee service and a pre-trial meeting to discuss the case over the phone, via Zoom, or in person.
